House Speaker John Boehner went over the top today when he ripped into President Barack Obama during an interview with Fox News Radio.
When talking to Kilmeade & Friends about Obama’s speech in Ohio yesterday, Boehner said this:
“Sometimes I have to catch my breath and slow down because the rhetoric in this campaign is just so over the top. And that’s because the President’s policies have failed. Listen - 93% of Americans believe they’re a part of the middle class. That’s why you hear the President talk about the middle class every day, because he’s talking to 93% of the American people. But the President has never created a job. He’s never even had a real job for God’s sake. And I can tell you from my dealings with him, he has no idea how the real world, that we actually live in, works.”

Boehner also said it’s been “months” since he’s last interacted with Obama in a meaningful way.
“Eleven months ago, Labor Day last year, the president decided to check out,” Boehner said. ”And he’s been AWOL from the legislative process ever since.”
UPDATE: Earlier, it was initially reported that Boehner said “He’s never even had a real job for Christ’s sake.” Upon listening to the audio, however, it is clear that Boehner actually said “He’s never even had a real job for God’s sake.” We’ve updated this post to reflect that.
